About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I have tried everything in life so far that I wanted to.. I dont want to miss a thıng :) To love, feel peace, explore, accept, learn....

ABOUT ME

I love to travel!! God this year has been so crazy so i dont know even how to describe myself anymore!! I got engaged and am pregnant! not what seems so normal to me for me to do!! :) but its done! I am looking forward to the baby arriving and then looking forward to returning to my red wine, laughing, doing some fun stuff, and crazy stuff! i have done some crazy stuff in my life and have been travelling by myself for a long time.. not really looking for anything, except i have gone on some spiritual quests before :) and soul searching stuff :) but i suppose i like to move alot cos there is only one life that we know of and there is so much to see and to do! I dont want to miss anything.. i love art, have this passion for art and knew it! Im engaged to artist! wooohooo :)!! i love animals.. but especially dogs.. and horses.. i love to ride.. nothing like that sense of freedom of being on a horses back.. ilove it!! i am open to everything really, except hurting others (unless they want to be hurt :) then it OK!! ) Life is beautiful but tough.. yin yang.. i try to embrace both aspects.. I can be both sides..

PHILOSOPHY

Oooooh! philosophy!!! Everyone should realise that everyone else has a brain that is equal to their own brain, but that will never see life exactly the same way that they see if, and therefore that you can never be entirely correct, and must always be open to the fact that on this planet there are so many million trillion different brains that will never ever entirely know, understand or ever agree with their own brain, and therefore there are a million trillion different perspectives and therefore million trillion different interpretations and truths going on every second on this crazy beautiful planet, and we should always be open to other perspectives, always realise that we could be wrong and that we should never puff ourselves with pride or self elation.......... but we should breathe, focus on the moment, love,, accept, be strong, be open, breathe, reflect, be peaceful and love some more.............vipassana!!! google it! Its the closest thing i ever found to feeling enlightenment, and i have tried many many things!!!................. yoga!! I love it!!! Try it, its fucking awesome activating your chakras so that you feel at peace with the universe around you, plus its fun feeling that you can touch your toes, or roll around on your back like you did once when you were a baby! And if you ask me, theres not enough standing on heads going on in this world.. we spend most of our lives standing on our feet! Isnt it time we balanced it out and stood on our heads for a while???? Life is full of opposites, embrace both, realise that when youre happy, ever so happy! That it is temporary and will change, and vice versa... dont ever expect life to stay the same, dont want to much, or hate too much, yin yang - accept the opposites, find peace in all that is black and all that is white, and experience both fully!!! Take time to listen more than you talk, everyone is always trying to talk and express their own silly brains while they dont often take time to sit and listen to everyone else silly brain expressing itself! Wear red underwear! It calms the root chakra - not to mention its sexy :) Flirt with people, it makes them happy and adds humour to life! Dont have bad intentions.. karma will work itself out even if it doesnt seem that way when things are going bad, wait, things will change again eventually.................. breathe........................................ have a fucking awesome time !

COLD WATER!! look it up on youtube right now!!! blues, jazz, latino, trance, drum and bass! Books - i read so many! I love the book shops in India!! and Nepal!!! Ooooh and Thailand!!! I love the books i find travelling.. if you havent read: WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, by Lionel Shriver then youre out of your mind! Go find it, its tough in the beginning but will blow you away! Have you read "The Life of Pi"??? Its super cool!!! MUIS?? MUIS is a graphic novel so every sentence has a drawing to match! Its beautiful! Or memoirs of a Geisha? Its like a poem.. Or Shantaram??? Thats gotto to be the best book ever, no???? I love reading, i read so much that i started writing my own book! Some of it was good and some of it was shitty!! But i do love reading, and words and the interesting beautiful words which writers use!! I want to write a book! once a fortune teller told my mother i would one day write a book...hmmm.. pity i dont believe in fortune tellers.. :( I read the bible cover to cover but i cant say it was all that.. but im proud i did it, i have read alot of religious books... :) movies: the neverending story will always be my favourite :) But if you wanna get blown away: Watch The GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO!! AND THE REST OF THE TRILOGY.. fightclub, pulp fiction, shawshank redemption, 300, Schindlers List, anything with leonardo dicapprio...for some reason i think he is great, but what is it?? cos he isnt exactly pretty!! and football.. i do like watching football.. but thats not a movie, is it???

One Amazing Thing I've Done

God, there are so many cool amazing things i have done and seen! Playing with an octopus under the ocean is pretty fucking amazing! I can see why my brother got a tattoo of an octopus after he played with one!!! Riding horses while drunk and stoned after no sleep and climbing up a mountain to watch the sunrise, then getting on a horse barefoot, with my hair all in long plaits and gallopping down the soft golden beach .. was bliss! I was like the air! FREEEEEEE and safe to run wild!!! Playing with giraffes in South Africa.. this one giraffe got a crush on me once, (i htink it liked the smell of the conditioner in my hair!) and it ran after me.. its knees were as tall as my head! Seriously it was like being chased by a dinosaur!! Was amazing.... walking with my eyes closed in salt pans in botswana/namibia, waking up to elephants outside my tent... jumping out of an aeroplane sky diving (i loathed it at the time so fucking much that tears streamed off my cheeks, until eventually the bastard made me get out the aeroplane anyway, and i did, fucking hanging out of a very high up HIGH UP aeroplane before he pushed me out, was not fun at that moment, but the sheer joy of having survived is AMAZING!!, jumping off a mountain - parasailing in nepal with a sexy instructor.. mmm.. he had very nice legs..:) and below me the most beautiful thing i saw, so beautiful that i got lost in its beauty was the twinkling of the sunshine in the shimmery water below.. was amazing!!! I want to learn how to parasail!!! .. climbing the himalayas!! I did it twice actually.. the first time i did it, i didnt like it cos i had no idea what i was in for and ended up in freezing weather with no money and i was ill, and there is only one way out, and thats scaling a himalayan peak.. so literally the last 2 days of ANNAPURNA, NEPAL, i had ZERO CASH, didnt eat or drink .. but i survived.. a year later i went back and did it again just to prove how very strong and powerful i am and that i would not let the last time hinder me... cos it was in hindsight the most incredible thing being up in the himalayas with no phones, and 100 kilometres to go before youre back safe and sound, so i did it this year alone, all by my sweet female self, no guide, no porter.. and i felt like a hobbit in lord of the rings, and i did it in record timing!! I did it the same pace as the Sherpas!! And to celebrate i bought a Everest beer and a bag of the finest himalayan marijuana, and i never felt so strong on the inside before in my life!!! Bliss :) silent meditation. I did 4 days in Korea and that was amazing and then more recently i did 10 days of silence and 10 hours roughly per day in still seated meditation.. seriously, if you have questions you wish to ask God, or find out some truth, go meditate.. sit for as long as it takes for you to find some answers... you will!
